Children at the Barber Center are celebrating the holidays early this year.
The kids performed in the annual Barber National Institute Christmas Show. The Executive Director, Maureen Barber, tells us the kids prepared for the show for several months. For many participants, this is their first time on stage. “I think Christmas is a time where we welcome all children. We celebrate all children. We celebrate adversity and I think at the Barber National Institute that’s what you see. We’re celebrating all children, regardless of their challenges because each of them is very unique and they have so much to offer us.”
Organizers say the Christmas show is one of the most exciting events for children and their families. Barber says Christmas is a time for accepting and embracing every child.
